Fairy Tales and Inner Dragons

I finally found a way to describe the inner turmoil that plays out in my mind on a fairly regular basis.  I've got this nasty little inner "dragon" that constantly is breathing fire down my back.  It's MY voice in my head that's heating things up for ME.

Well, it's time to hire a dragon slayer to help me slay the beast in my brain.  I know it's not going to be easy, after all, it took 30 years for this dragon to grow, I'm not going to be able to slay it overnight.  It's going to take some time to replace the voice that once belonged to others and eventually became my own worst enemy, with a positive one. 

The challenge is internalizing that positive voice, and making it my own.  Oh, yes, I have already found one to listen to, thankfully.  And once I internalize that voice?  This dragon's days are numbered.  (Yeah, I know, the number may be in the high triple digits at the moment, but they are numbered nonetheless!)


  1. Hi Purple Dreamer,

    Fellow purple lover here.

    You've made a great step in identifying the existence of your dragon. The next is to tell that lizzard to get the stepping. Here is a post I did a few months back. I was doing a #31DayReset and one of the tasks was to write a letter to your lizard brain. Here is post and included letter.

    Perhaps, during this 30 days your can invite your dragon to deport or just blow that mofo up!

    1. Hi purple fan! Great color, isn't it? :) I love the 31 day reset letter you wrote. Quite a task to eliminate the lizard brain, and I like the idea of starting with an eviction notice. I'll keep you posted! Thanks for the idea, and thanks for stopping in!

  2. Just wanted to say that I can relate. Been working on this myself. Thank you for your honest writing.


So? What do you think?
